Fall is definitely here…
Mid last week, we had some 90 degree and humid weather, but then over night it turned quite cool.
The following morning, you could fill a distinct nip or chill in the air. It was as if Fall arrived with a blink of an eye in the course of a mere few hours of shut eye over night – Wake me up September is most definitely here and not over yet.
And even though we made it to 70 degrees under mostly sunny skies, it was still not a summer 70 degrees, but more a fall, breezy 70.
So, I knew what I had to do and got cracking as far as being more organized went…
Because school (on our third week in now) and soccer (on our way to week three) are definitely in need of me keeping up and being on top of all that is needed for the school year and sports season, as well now.
On Friday, I took a ride with Lily to Target, while Emma was in school to try my hand at being the mom who at the very least will no longer forget things, such as kindergarten orientation (yes, most who read this blog are aware that I did indeed do that and surely won’t be living that down any time soon here).
What was I looking for and end up buying to help me be more organized?
A countertop/desktop organizer to put papers (yes everyday more papers from school come home) and pens, as well as other important school supplies, such as scissors and such…
And a cork bulletin board to hang all upcoming and important notices from the school, as well…
And yet as organized as I have gotten, I couldn’t stop Lily from coming down with her very first head cold of the Fall season this past weekend.
That’s right this past weekend on top of all the wonderful that surrounded us, Lily was running a low grade fever, as well as complaining of a stuffy nose (Kevin told me with her little nasal voice she sounded like she was drunk! – But seriously she just sounded so pathetic).
So, she ending up vegging out, while watching her fair share of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse On Demand with her blanket on our couch. Ironically enough, I got to try out my newest Influenster VoxBox get, because of this though.
